Unique Home Gifts That Aren’t Dust Collectors

Holiday home gifts are a fickle affair — starting with things we want but don't need (luxe candles), moving to things we need but won't buy for ourselves (new oven mitts), and ending with things we don't want or need period (weird art pieces). So, what is our solution when shopping for someone else's space? Goods that are as unique as they are useful.
If you're stumped on what exactly a unique-useful home gift looks like, we've rounded up ten shining examples in a range of price points ahead. Whether you're looking to spend a lot or a little on someone this season, these surprising finds — from decor to tech, storage, and more — will get the job done in crowd-pleasing style.
